This past weekend was beautiful! I mean 65 degrees at the end of January in Colorado with lots of sun beautiful! Today....cold, dark, snow and tomorrow has a forecast high of -2!
Whats a girl to do? Paint something blue of course....
This mirror was part of a dresser. It actually went to the dresser turned TV stand.
Now it lives on the mantle.
There she is in all her glory....brown and boring. Until....I remembered I picked up some of those cute little Benjamin Moore paint samples for $.49 at Ace Hardware yesterday. I gave her a rough base coat of Blue Spa and then dry brushed Amarillo on top in the nooks and crannies.
Oh she is so pretty now! I wish I had done this forever ago.
Here you can see just a hint of the yellow peeking thru. She just sings against the Behr Silver Lining on the walls.
She is proudly wearing the coffee filter wreath I made which is adorned with the "Be my Valentine" in the middle. That is one of two in the Valentine's Day decor....the second being the conversation hearts haphazardly thrown into a quart size mason jar. I am not a big Valentine's decorator, don't know why. See the jar of shells next to the picture, they are from our family vacation to Florida a few years ago. The two large shells are from the Hippie, she just came back from San Diego.
One more picture just because he is so stinking cute! Wish it wasn't so dark in here.
Happy Blue Monday!
